Friendships are one of life’s most powerful relationships, shown to boost happiness, improve self-confidence, and help people cope with traumas, including illnesses like cancer. The Friends of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute have funded powerful cancer research at Dana-Farber since 1976, raising more than $30 million to fuel promising research, care, and support programs across all treatment centers. From support for Friends’ Place, the Dana-Farber Chapel, and the art program, to providing funding for the mammography van and the Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women’s Blood Mobile, the traveling extension of the Kraft Family Blood Donor Center, the Power of Friends is everywhere.
To join the Friends, an all-volunteer community of more than 1,200 vibrant members, or get involved in an upcoming event, please call 617-632-3021 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
